Jean-Claude Van Damme,
Forest ranger and Ex-Navy SEAL Henry is forced by the drug cartel to help retrieve a major shipment of drugs which went missing on the US-Canadian border.

Upon discovering that their fellow CBP officers were killed, the proper protocol for the two officers who discovered the murders would have been to immediately draw their firearms to safeguard against a remaining potential threat AND to radio or phone for backup. The backup that arrived would have been substantial in the form of a sea of CBP officers and Border Patrol agents, with state, provincial, and local police arriving on "both sides of the border" to begin canvassing the area for the dangerous suspects. Instead, the two officers violated CBP's departmental protocol by not calling for backup, and pursuing the assailants by themselves through a dark forest. Not surprisingly, this ended up being a costly mistake. See more »
Just watched this and was not expecting much as JCVD's movies seem to be cheap these days and shot somewhere depressing in eastern Europe and badly cast with the exception of 6 bullets witch was halfway decent at a push. well enemies closer is by far the best JCVD movie excluding his role in Sly's Expendables sequel which was also cool. the cast in this movie is a lot better i really enjoyed Orlando Jones in this iv never seen him in anything before tom Everett scott was probably the weakest character not that he's a bad actor he just seemed the least likeliest guy to play the part he did. However Mr Van Damme was awesome i really enjoyed his character he was a nut bag he seemed really into it there was plenty of action good fight scenes and a decent plot to follow with a little twist JCVD seems to have a new handle at acting without having to Kick his way around a movie it was good to see him in a decent flick. its not the 80's van damme but the guys nearly a senior citizen. there's a sub plot also with JCVD's passion for our planet and nature he makes a really good effort and why not good for him. i applaud this movie and would recommend it. a good 7/10
